November Thursday Tune - Cesaria Evora

This is a delightful video reflection set to a beautiful song from the Cape Verdean singer, Cesaria Evora, who died in 2011 aged 70.

 The article here puts it well: "Évora’s voice has a smooth tonal quality that requires no external help. It could well be a disembodied voice floating around in the universe just singing from planet to planet and stars to stars. What captures me is that I do not understand a word of what she is saying. That only enhances her appeal. "
